Gastown Shop Hop November 4 – A Fashion Lover’s Scavenger Hunt (With Free Drinks!)

If you love fashion—especially unique, independent, cutting-edge fashion—and can afford an occasional splurge, Gastown is the place to shop in Vancouver. If you love all of that but love a good sale, too—how does 20% – 25% off fall fashions sound?—then you can’t miss the Gastown Shop Hop this Thursday, November 4.

For the Gastown Shop Hop, over 20 of Gastown’s most fabulous fashion boutiques, including the divine menswear Roden Gray, Fluevog shoes, and celeb-fave Obakki, throw mini parties for shoppers “hopping” from one store to the other (all shops are within a short walking distance of each other in the historic Gastown neighbourhood). At each boutique, shoppers enjoy the sales, plus complimentary snacks, beverages, and bubbly.
